Seven men who say they were sexually abused while pupils at a former Cardiff school in the 1960s and 1970s have received about £350,000 in payouts since 2011, BBC Wales has learnt.

David Leighton Davies, an art teacher at Cyntwell High School in Ely, is alleged to have carried out the abuse.

The allegations range from sexual touching to rape.

Cardiff council said the claims were settled by insurers with no admission of liability.

Paul Martin spoke to one of the victims, whose words are spoken by an actor.
